We walked as far as the very wet trails allowed and apart from a few insects we saw nothing. We actually saw more birds in the car park than anywhere else It was extremely quiet but not much more to say.

Upon entering the preserve we saw three Sandhill Cranes and four more by the visitor center. Took a show walk along the trail and saw a bald eagle fly from a tree. Also, saw several butterflies.

This is place is only good for folks just looking to get away from the crowds of Orlando. Not really a good place for serious hikers.
